Folks:

Here's a contest for 100 word stories with a prize of $20,000 for 1st place. :pinkiegasp:

There's no entry fee as far as I can tell, and it seems to be legitimate. Check the rules at the page below.

100 words? That's one fifth the length of my shortest story!

Still, for a shot at 20 grand I can try paring it down. :trixieshiftright:

A hundred words?!

This seems... strange.

Thanks for the link. Still sounds suspicious but I will probably try to enter.

They do this every year. It's funded by a bequest IIRC. They get something like 20,000 entries, and they charge no fee for submission, so, yes, it's legit. The only thing to be wary of is they have a very strong ideological slant--the entire purpose of the charitable bequest is to encourage peaceful coexistence between cultures. Unfortunately I expect that means, as is always the case when people say something like that, that your story must avoid any thoughtful consideration of how cultures might actually coexist, and instead cover it in fairy dust and wishes for a perfect human nature.

Well:

I only write fantasy anyway... :twilightsmile:
